In response to ClarkGriswold's comment:
What? I could easily go pull their scouting reports. BB didn't reach for any of those picks. Meriweather had maturity issues and was deemed not coachable anymore. Disappointment, but to say he "lacked talent"? That's flat out false. He was a top rated Safety for the 2007 draft.
Butler was a Deion Sanders favorite coming out of the 2009 draft. Chung has injury issues. It happens. But, to say these guys "lack talent" is more of a lie than anything I stated.
McCourty lacks talent? You calling BB a liar? He was raving about McCourty's on field IQ and versatility earlier this year.
You can look around every roster in this league and see 1st rd picks that weren't given a second deal by all teams because they just weren't a great pick.
You act like it's exlclusive to BB. For every Wheatley or Butler, there's a Samuel, or a James Sanders and a McCourty.
It could be far worse. It could be the Jets with Justin Miller and Kyle Wilson and then 30 million into two CBs with nothing to show for it, not even a divison title.
The point is YOU are calling these guys talented (as in GOOD) and calling those who dispute that as irrational, AFTER they have played in the NFL. (at the time of your post McCourty was a rookie.)
The draft was years(s) before your claim for 3 of the 4 your were praising.
Meriweather cut by end of rookie contract.
Butler cut before rookie contract ended.
Chung to be cut by end of rookie contract.
McCourty failed at CB, reclamation project at S.
These are all guys you have lauded, praised and rated as good picks.
Are you now going to lie more and say you didn't applaud these weak draft picks right along?
